Slight correction
Authored by: wfolta on Mar 14, '03 04:51:20PM

I had some problems today and don't know if this had anything to do with it or not. I also noticed that I'd made an assumption about the class of the internal network at the other end of the VPN connection.

In the add route command, I had an IP address of AAA.BBB.0.0, which means we have a Class B network at the other end of the VPN, so the network part of an IP address is the first two numbers, while the machine part is the last two numbers.

Two things to note:

1. The command should be edited to say "-net AAA.BBB" with no trailing zeroes. I assume this is the same thing, but it makes the intent clearer and might make a difference.

2. You need to know what class your office has and make sure the -net IP address reflects this. It might not be Class B. In fact, it might be a hybrid that requires you to use netmask notation. (I.e. AAA.BBB.CCC/18 or something like that.)
